Research and Scholarship

Current Research Projects

  • Dental Clinic Patient Perception Survey of Medication Importance Research included creating a survey for patients who come through the Creighton University Dental Clinic’s assessment clinic that assesses their perception of their likelihood and importance of disclosing their prescription, over the counter, vitamin, and herbal medications to their dentist. The results of this survey will be analyzed to better educate patients on the importance of informing their dentist of all of their medications. Dental and Pharmacy Students Interprofessional Perceptions Research included creating separate surveys for third and fourth year dental students and fourth year pharmacy students on the Dental MTM ambulatory advanced pharmacy practice rotation. The differences in answers at baseline and after completing the interprofessional experience will be analyzed. Pharmacist and Pharmacy Student Dental Clinic Interventions Research included documenting all interventions with patients and dental students that were made by the pharmacist and pharmacy students in Creighton University’s Dental Clinic. Results will be analyzed to demonstrate the impact pharmacy can have in the clinic. Cardiovascular and Diabetes Risk Reduction Program Research included analyzing changes in blood pressure and lifestyle behaviors for patients after one year of participation in a pharmacist run employee health program. The participants showed significant improvements in both blood pressure and lifestyle behaviors which suggested that pharmacists can positively impact the management of hypertension through lifestyle modifications in an employee health setting.
